Dearly Beloved
Fred Astaire Lyrics


Tell me that it's true,
Tell me you agree,
I was meant for you,
You were meant for me.

[Chorus:]
Dearly beloved, how clearly I see,
Somewhere in Heaven you were fashioned for me,
Angel eyes knew you,
Angel voices led me to you
Nothing could save me,
Fate gave me a sign
I know that I'll be yours come shower or shine
So I say merely,
Dearly beloved be mine.

[Chorus]

Kellem Family

This was my grandmother and grandfather's song. It is inscribed on their headstone. So romantic. He was a doctor in WWII and she was a nurse. They were stationed on opposite sides of the hemisphere, but they remained true throughout the war. He was in Panama and she followed Patton through Europe. He flew her engagement ring to her and it was dropped into her unit with a parachute full of supplies. After the war, they were separated only by my grandfather's death in 1968. I never knew him.

This song was sang at my grandmothers wedding, in three days it will be played at mine.

Jerome Kern, the ultimate American composer. Astaire does a beautiful rendition with this. Unequaled. Thanks

What a GREAT song, a superb melody. And you can hear Conrad Salinger's signature arranging/orchestration style with those horns floating in and out.

Izzy Perez

I could cry to this song. Honestly.

Perry Weiner

Of course!! Totally justified tears.

PsychoNikki

One of the best gifts in history.

Who said Fred Astaire couldn’t sing? Certainly could and this was a
beautiful song in a lovely film.
